Please try to click on the site from your first message and see what it does. It does nothing for me.

It worked for me too. I especially love Wang Qimin as Carmen; she may be tiny but she has loads of character! :) Thanks for posting, mumwang.

It does not work for me and I have tried it many time sin both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. It says loading then stops and has writing in Chinese which I cannot read. I tried it on a 2nd computer and also nothing. It never showed any length other than 0 minutes 0 seconds. What did you do to see even one second of the video? please go into detail sinc eI get nothing and I have very fast internet connection speed.

The writing simply says that it had trouble downloading the content from the server. It may be that downloads are restricted by country, or that something in your browser (such as extensions blocking ads) may be interfering with streaming. Thanks to mumwang for uploading some of the content to Youtube.

I am watching the hour-long broadcast right now and am blown away by the talent! Thank you so much for posting the links. This is such a pleasure to see!

Maria Seletskaja, originally from the Estonian National Ballet (from where she went to Malachov's Berlin Ballet) is coming up in a couple of minutes - can't wait to see her!

Sorry for dragging up this old thread, but I've only just seen it in a Google search and I'd have PMed mumwang if I could. mumwang, could you upload Yuan Yuan Tan's segment of the CCTV video onto YouTube, or at least tell me how to do it if you're unable to? As a big fan of Ms. Tan, I believe that this performance of the 'Lady of the Camellias' pdd represents a new dramatic high for her and should be more widely seen. I've tried to capture the video stream via various software but have been unable to do so.

And since I've brought up Ms. Tan, are there any clips of her performances with SFB floating around? I've already seen SFB's broadcasts of 'Othello', 'The Little Mermaid', and 'The Nutcracker', and these just leave me wanting more! As I'm a non-U.S. resident, it's unlikely that I'll ever make it to San Francisco to watch SFB live. From the various multimedia on their website, it's obvious that SFB films entire productions, so is there any way that we can see more than just snippets? I'd be willing to pay to watch whole performances.

Eshana, someone helped me to extract the smirnova/chudin pdd from the entire gala, I only uploaded it on to youtube. So I'm not sure how to extract the YYT's segment. If I find the out the way I will let you know. Sorry.

Thanks a lot for those clips, mumwang - I had seen them already. Both are beautiful performances (as we've come to expect from Ms. Tan), but the reason why I'd like her Lady of the Camellias pdd to be more widely seen is because I think it represents a breakthrough of sorts for her - I've never seen her give a more passionate performance aside from her work in The Little Mermaid. Granted, I've never seen her live so I'm basing my opinion solely on what I've seen of her work online.

Which brings me to another thing - it is so hard being a fan of Ms. Tan (and many other dancers) when you have never, and probably never will, see them live! You only get to see snatches of their magic through the Internet or television, and they just captivate you and leave you wanting more. In the case of Ms. Tan, I know that many of her performances at SFB have been filmed based on snippets I've seen online - if only there was a way to gain access to the whole performances!

I've seen a clip of her dancing as Esmeralda (which may or may not have been at SFB) on a talk show as well - she looked absolutely wonderful in it and I'm sure the entire thing must've been filmed so maybe one day some kind Chinese fan will put it up for us all to see.
